Beethoven Sonatas vol II

Ludwig van Beethoven, The French Revolution and the transition from Classicism to Romanticism are all terms which belong closely together. Beethoven's Sonatas for Fortepiano and Cello or Horn clearly demonstrate the connection - they were composed throughout his entire creative career and tell a continuous story, a musical and historical testament, of maturity and change. In this eminent recording we are given the opportunity to a direct encounter with the powers of Time and Aesthetics.

Op. 5 No. 2 (fortepiano and cello)
Op. 17 (fortepiano and horn)
Op. 102 No. 1 (fortepiano and cello)

"Forced to live with a permanent physical disorder, born with a fiery temperament, I had to isolate myself, live my life alone." The musical genius that lost his hearing never succumbed to fate. On the contrary - over and over again he managed to adjust to the shifting phases of his life and art. As a creative artist, Beethoven stood for constant renewal throughout his entire career, and he never hesitated from sharing his innermost feelings with his listeners. The three sonatas on this CD were created in three different phases - meet the young, the struggling and the mature Beethoven in an intense and lucid performance. "I will fly at fate and attack it - it will never succeed in striking me to the ground!"
